A pair of bedazzled boots that Michael Jackson planned to wear during his scheduled concerts in London were auctioned off for $14,650 at a fundraiser for HIV/AIDS research chaired by his sister, Janet Jackson.

Organizers say the event late Monday as part of Milan Fashion Week raked in $1.1 million for the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR), and drew such star power as Donatella Versace, model Linda Evangelista and rapper Kanye West.

According to the Associated Press, the event included a charity dinner in a central Milan palace and continued into the early hours of Tuesday with DJ Bob Sinclar serving his famous mixes on an upstairs dance floor.

“I’d just like to thank everyone here in the global fashion community who’ve done so much to help amfAR and to support HIV/AIDS research,” Janet Jackson told celebrity diners, who paid anywhere from $2,200 to $11,500 each for dinner tickets. “When this terrible pandemic began everyone … who was infected died of AIDS. Today with your help millions of people are living with HIV.”
